Ribbon Crazy

6 03 2008

I kinda have an obsession with ribbon of all types… rich silks, sweet grosgrain, textured taffeta. I love it all. I can think of a million uses for ribbon in not only weddings, but everyday life. For now, a few ways to tie ribbons into your wedding.

  • Wrapped around a boutonniere, ribbon can add a splash of color or whimsy.

    • Ribbon makes a great accent to wedding stationery, whether as a belly band as an alternative to pocketfolds, or just a decorative touch.

      • Ribbon-edged ring pillows are a great way to tie in colors or add a little pattern into your decor

        • Lots of ribbons cascading from a bouquet makes quite the statement. I absolutely love it.

          • I’m loving this idea of wrapping simple canisters with bands of ribbon.

            • My very favorite ribbon idea today… ribbons blowing in the breeze at an otherwise undecorated ceremony site. This is elegant simplicity at its best.

              I hope this goes to prove that something as simple as ribbon can really transform! It doesn’t have to be an over-the-top smattering of bows, just something as easy as wrapping a coffee can with a few ribbons or tying a small bow to an invitation. Just play around with different ribbon and see what you can come up with!
